SUMMER!

posted May 8, 2012, 9:16 AM by Memorial Middle School Band

Dear MMS Band Families,

As the end of the school year quickly approaches, we have a few (ok, more than a few) reminders and new information for the summer months -

1. ALL INSTRUMENTS MUST BE OUT OF THE BUILDING NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, MAY 11! The music department is getting new carpet over the summer and we must have everything cleared about before the end of the school year.

2. School Instruments - We are in the process of getting school instruments checked for summer repair. School Instruments will be given back to students by the end of the week for use over the summer. Please fill out the attached check-out form to use a school instrument this summer (there is no fee for summer instrument use). Students will also receive a copy of this form.

3. Middle School All-State Band - Please see the attached letter for information regarding the audition process for Middle School All-State Band. Memorial has an average of 4 students making this group each year. Our goal this year is 10 or more! We have many talented students that CAN make this group with the proper preparation.

4. Summer Band - I have attached a registration form for Sioux Falls Parks & Rec Youth Summer Band. This is an amazing opportunity for band students to continue playing over the summer in a fun and supportive environment!

5. Private Lessons - The summer months are a great time to enroll your student with a private instructor. A current list of private teachers recommended by the district is available on the "Forms and Docs" page of the band website www.mmsband.co.cc.

6. Sioux Empire Spectacular - Every year, professional drum & bugle corps from Drum Corp International perform a show in Sioux Falls. This year's show in on Sunday, Jun 24th and will also feature a marching clinic lead by the two-time DCI World Champion Madison Scouts. This clinic is for current 8th grade & high school students. IMPORTANT: ALL 8TH GRADERS MARCHING AT RHS NEXT YEAR ARE EXPECTED TO ATTEND THE CLINIC!. Ticket and Clinic order forms are attached. Please bring any ticket or clinic order forms to school by Monday, May 14.

7. MOST IMPORTANT - CHECK WITH YOUR STUDENT AND MAKE SURE THEY SIGNED UP FOR BAND NEXT YEAR! Every student we have in band is IMPORTANT to us! If your student is not sure about band next year, please communicate any concerns you have. We want to make band work for everyone!

All forms attached to this email will also be available on the MMS Band Website. Please bookmark our website www.mmsband.co.cc and check in often - we will be posting announcements over the summer! Thank you so very much for a great year in band at Memorial!
